Ireland tells Nelson to give money back

Tim Ireland, Republican candidate for insurance commissioner, asked Democratic opponent Bill Nelson on Tuesday to return almost $84,000 in contributions Ireland claims was taken illegally.

The state Republican Party already filed a complaint with the state Division of Elections for accepting money during the week before the Sept. 8 primary, which was prohibited.

Nelson's campaign manager Brian May said the campaign received money before Sept. 1, but computer problems caused the contributions to be reported after the date. Nelson doesn't plan to return the money, May said.
